International Educational Leadership Conference March 3-5, 2021 International Educational Leadership Conference | March 3-5, 2021

Conference Theme: “Strategic Initiatives for School Improvement”

How can Christian school leaders deepen a commitment to and a strategy for school improvement in their leadership team? How can we work together to create a community where schools can engage in self-assessment, define strategic goals and contribute to strategic development in partnership with other schools as they implement a Christian vision of education?

Sub-theme: “The Position of Christian Schools in Modern Society”

What is our calling as Christian school leaders in modern society? How can we increase our relevance and act more strategically to benefit both our schools and our pupils? If the modern world is all about connection, how do we get connected and stay connected? What communication methods do we use? What language is appropriate? When should we speak and when should we listen? How do the principles of wisdom apply to our culture? If you are asking these questions, so are many others.

Conference goal

Our aim at this conference is to learn from each other as well as our speakers who are Christian leaders and influencers from different branches of our society and media. The conference will feature varied experiences from across Europe and in that spirit we extend a warm welcome to all our international guests. The main purpose is that we go home encouraged, in connection with God, ourselves, our schools, our politicians, our media, our society. The conference is also an opportunity to meet, encourage and empower each other. We hope to meet you all online! You are most welcome!
